Virtualization saves hardware resources
We recently began the process of moving a client towards a fully virtualized environment based on VMware. The client had two aging servers which were approaching their warranty expiration. Rather than replacing the servers one-for-one, two new computers were "bonded" together using VMWare software. The servers and their software can now keep running even if one of the physical servers has a hardware failure. In the near future, virtualized workstations will be joining the servers in this environment, removing reliance on the individual desktop computer from their business.
